ICS Blog Hop Paper Palooza...Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper

ICS bloghop

Welcome to the Inspire, Create & Share Blog Hop!   We are so excited to share with you lots of ideas and inspiration using the Designer Series Paper in the Buy 3, Get 1 Free promotion.  I chose to use the Tropical Escape DSP.  I was born and raised in Hawaii so I was drawn to the pretty colors and images of this package of paper along with the entire Tropical Escape Suite.


On my card i used 3 of the designs from the Tropical Escape DSP.  Here you can see 2 of the designs.  I love that the  DSP is designed so one side of the paper is more patterned and the flip side is more neutral.  This makes it easy to use all the papers and mix and match patterns.  I stamped lots of leaves and flowers from the Tropical Chic stamp set and cut them out using the Tropical Thinlits die.  These 2 items can be purchased individually or as a bundle (10% off when you buy them as a bundle!).


The card is free-standing and would also be a great way to display a photo.  Here are the measurements and scoring I used to create the card.

Shaded Spruce card base:  5-1/2" x 8-1/4" scored at 2", 3", 5-1/4", 6-1/4"

Shaded Spruce focal panel: 3-1/4" x 4-1/4"

Tropical Escape DSP

    floral and foliage: 2 @ 1-3/4" x 5-1/4,  1 @  2" x 5-1/4"

    Blushing Gride w/white dots:  2@ 3/4" x 5-1/4"

    white with Granny Apple Green lines:  3" x 4"


Here you can see where the Blushing Bride and white dot DSP is hiding.  The lovely ribbon is the Granny Apple Green 1/2" Textured Weave ribbon.  This ribbon also comes in Gray Granite and they both coordinate beautifully with the Tropical Escape DSP.

Now it is time for you to hop on over to see what the talented  Audra Monk has created for you.
